Representative Text

1 Thy might sets fast the mountains;
strength girds thee evermore
to calm the raging peoples
and still the ocean's roar.
Thy majesty and greatness are through all lands confessed,
and joy on earth thou sendest
afar, from east to west.

2 To bless the earth thou sendest
from thy abundant store
the waters of the springtime,
enriching it once more.
The seed by thee provided
is sown o'er hill and plain,
and thou with gentle showers
dost bless the spinging grain.

3 The year with good thou crownest,
the earth thy mercy fills,
the wilderness is fruitful,
and joyful are the hills.
With corn the vales are covered,
the flocks in pastures graze;
all nature joins in singing
a joyful song of praise.
